Best resource for CISM preparation

Hello everyone,

 

One of my friend's has attended the CCSP and said that the CCSP exam is more cloud focussed and from his knowledge CISM covers the same domain as CCSP(CloudCertifiedSecurityProf) but not just specific to cloud.

 

Can anyone of you with experience in CCSP and CISM share some thoughts around this.Also, what would be the best reosurce to prepare for CISM exam.

 

Regards,

Pavan

Re: Best resource for CISM preparation

The only CISM certification I am aware of is the security management certification offered by ISACA.  It is more inline with the CISSP, than the CCSP.

 

The CCSP is the which is similar to the CSA's CCSK (which ISC(2) partnered with to create the CCSP).

 

As to resources, there are CBTNuggets for CISM and not to mention the books available from ISACA.

Re: Best resource for CISM preparation

The CISM is very similar to the CISSP. In fact, I actually used my CISSP study materials for the CISM exam and was able to pass it without issue. This was over 10 years ago though, so things have obviously changed in terms of focus areas.
